    Hi Guys

    Just upgraded & installed my new mobo chip & ram earlier.
    After installing windows, updates & programs I left it on to do a defrag for a couple of hours.

    When I came back Asus Fan Expert had sent a popup warning saying the motherboard temperature is 123c (253.4f) which cant be right surely?!!!

    I popped off the side to have a look and the VRM heatsinks up top are room temp but the heatsink towards the bottom, where a traditional "southbridge" would be, is pretty hot to the touch (though i can leave my finger on it without burning).

    Is this a common thing with these boards/Asus Fan Expert and nothing to worry about?
    Or do i need to reseat this heatsink on this "southbridge" area of the board?

    Yeah it's the software that's buggy, i sometimes i get crazy voltage warnings and unreal temperature warnings.

    yeah i just got a fright as after installing the hardware and operating system i went for a nap... woke up and checked on the pc to find a warning for the momo hitting a massive temp lol.

    since then I havent had any issues so im not that worried now :)
